Welcome
 

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Dripping Springs web site.  We invite you to take a look around our site and to find out more about our club and about Rotary International.  If, after considering what we offer you and the community, you would like to look into membership, please consider contacting us here.  If you are interested in speaking for the club, please contact us here.

The Rotary Club is a service organization focusing on local and international needs.  Locally, we have sponsored projects such as a multi-year character building program at a local elementary school, construction of concession and restroom facilities at the local sports park, construction of therapeutic gardens at a local assisted living facility, construction of picnic area improvements for the Dripping Springs Chamber of Commerce, supporting the local food bank, and helping a local center for disadvantaged youths with repairs and improvements.  We also put on an annual tribute to veterans on Veteran's Day.  To pay for all of this we raise funds through dues, and various fund raisers.

 We meet at Flores Mexican Restaurant two miles or so east of Dripping Springs on 290, Mondays at noon.  We conduct club business, have some social time for the members and have a variety of speakers about local and broader issues of interest. We occasionally have a social event, including our annual Officer Induction Dinner and a Christmas Party.  All of our activities are open; we have no secrets and we are proud of who we are.  We enjoy our Rotary membership and seek to support our community and the greater good through service.  After all, the motto of Rotary is "service above self," and we seek to embody that.

If these types of activities appeal to you, then we invite you to consider applying for membership in The Dripping Springs Rotary Club.  As Hays County enters into an exciting time of unparalleled growth the opportunities and need for our services are expanding.  We hope to continue growing our club to meet the challenge.

Meet Rotary’s new president
This excerpt from the July issue of The Rotarian magazine profiles the 2015-16 RI president. Before he gives a speech, K.R. Ravindran doesn’t like flowery, adulatory introductions. They make him uncomfortable. The 2015-16 Rotary president would rather keep a low profile and share the credit. If it were up to him, you probably wouldn’t even be reading this article. Negotiating Days of Tranquility during the Sri Lankan civil war so that health workers could administer drops of polio vaccine? Although it was on his desk that the agreement landed, he says, a lot of people worked to make that...

Early cancer detection is saving lives in Sri Lanka
More than 20,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed every year in Sri Lanka, and many of them prove fatal. The Rotary Club of Colombo, Sri Lanka, set out 10 years ago to save some of those lives by establishing the Cancer Prevention and Early Detection Centre.  In partnership with the National Cancer Control Programme and the Ministry of Health, the center in Colombo has screened more than 35,000 patients, mostly low-income, and detected more than 7,500 cases of abnormalities that required further investigation. The Rotary Club of Birmingham, Alabama, USA, donated a mammography and ultrasound...

Rotary releases $40.3 million for polio immunization activities
Rotary is releasing $40.3 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, three countries where the disease has never been stopped. The funds will help build on gains Rotary and its partners have been making in the fight to eradicate polio. Nigeria hasn’t seen a polio case since 24 July 2014 and the World Health Organization could remove it from the list of polio-endemic countries as soon as September if no cases are reported. Nigeria would have to go another two years without a case to be certified polio-free. But the...
